The Church grants a Plenary Indulgence to any faithful who visits the cemetery on All Souls Day on the first 8 days of November to pray for the holy souls. This Plenary Indulgence is to be transferred to the souls most in need of God’s mercy in Purgatory.
As you know, our parish’s cemetery is located on 21st Street and 26th Avenue, opposite the New York Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation. On Wednesday, November 2, I invite you to join the priests of our parish in making a visit to that cemetery. You can meet us by the church parking lot at 10:00am and we will walk together there, or you can meet us there and join us in prayer at 10:15am. We will conclude in time to walk back for the 12 Noon Mass at church.
If you have not done so, please enroll your deceased loved ones to be included in our prayer during the Novena of Masses for Holy Souls, which begins on November 3 and will continue for 9 days, during which your loved ones will be prayed for in a special way during the Eucharistic Prayer at Mass. Envelopes are available at the church entrances.
Thank you and may God bless you!
